This was a great experience. The food was outstanding, the combination of flavors was awesome! There were many options to choose from on the menu. If you like seafood or steak this is a great place to indulge in.

Heirloom is our favorite spot in VB and we couldn't wait to get back once it reopened. Obviously the restaurant wasn't quite back to normal given the circumstances, but it had no impact on the food quality or service.
As always with Heirloom, the farm to table menu is always changing, so there is always something new and exciting to try. Typically with fine dining portions are on the smaller side, but thats not the case here. Portions are well sized and beautifully prepared.
The staff is phenomenal. All of the wait staff and management are charming and make you feel right at home. Ive always found it difficult here to find a staff that balances giving you the attention you need during a meal without disrupting your evening. They handle it perfectly.
As always my favorite wine was on hand and paired perfectly with a delicious meal. Id love to offer less praise so I could selfishly always be able to get a reservation, but that wouldn't be fair to the best restaurant in Hampton Roads.

Heirloom might not be around the corner, but it's worth getting there for an amazing dinner! Reopened in July, after a December grand opening, followed by an extended pandemic closing, this DINING GEM will quickly become difficult to reserve. My daughter and I made the trip from Norfolk, and nearly wept the food and service were so good. We highly recommend the signature butterflied shrimp, the creative peach, tomato & burrata, the blackened scallops, the pork chop and the key lime pie with melted marshmallow. That's everything we shared! I had a terrific spicy Bloody Mary and my daughter enjoyed a delicious Chardonnay. Next time, we will invest in an Uber or designated driver and sample the intriguing cocktails. I've visited my daughter in Norfolk many times over the last years and we now have a top favorite fine dining out spot. Also noteworthy is the reasonable pricing for such exquisite dining. Go & Enjoy!

Heirloom has transformed a dated restaurant into a lovely, bright and welcoming dining experience. Superb food, in a pleasant and relaxing location can’t be beat. We appreciated the attention to distancing - the seating was spacious and comfortable. It was delightful to see how cleverly the dining area was redesigned into separate, semi-private spaces, reducing overall noise and creating a personal ambience. Well done! We could have made an entire meal on Oysters and Truffle Fries! Beautifully prepared and decadently delicious food all the way.

We were blown away by our experience at Heirloom! We had heard from friends that the food was amazing, but we were still awed by how delicious everything was. The service was friendly, attentive, and informative. Not pretentious at all. And the best surprise of all was the bill! Yes, its fine dining and that does represent more of an investment, but we were shocked about what we got for the money.

The fried shrimp is a MUST!

This was one of the best restaurants we’ve ever visited (and trust me, eating out is our thing, so we’ve been to many good restaurants). The service was amazing, the foods delicious cocktails were incredible. The atmosphere was so enjoyable. Honestly in my top three meals in my life, if not THE best. Had the whole snapper with plantains. The flavor was to die for, and the presentation was so cool!

I want to Thank Brent and his Fantastic Waitstaff for Making my Birthday So special. Everything from the fried Shrimp appetizer, Oysters, and main course of Seared Scallops and Whole Red Snapper were outstanding. Not to mention the Waitstaffs attention to detail. If you Truly want a restaurant that hits all the High Notes. Make it this one. You won't be disappointed. Thank You again Brent, it was truly memorable!!!

This restaurant is a gem in the courthouse section of VB. You can't go wrong with anything you order, as it's all amazing. The menu changes throughout the year but always has the freshest ingredients. I had a whole fried snapper with a Thai chili sauce, candied plantains and coconut rice. It was cooked to perfection and was a huge fish. My wife had the crab cake with mashed potatoes and veggies. The crab cake was probably 95% crab and seared to perfection. The desserts were great too. Come here, you won't regret it.

I stumbled upon Heirloom trying to find a highly rated restaurant in VA Beach while visiting my son. He had never heard of the restaurant but the reviews and menu looked great so we tried it. What a find! The design, the staff, the food, the wine selection, the cocktails all met and exceeded our 'foodie' expectations.

The staff were very attentive and made great recommendations for every course, selections from the wine list and even dessert. This is what every meal at a comfortable but higher end dining establishment should be. I wished I lived in the area - I'd be a regular.

Heirloom is a hidden gem. The food is always delicious and with changing seasonal menu options there is always something new to try. The staff is friendly, attentive and give you the local, neighborhood restaurant treatment with a high-class touch. Seafood is always perfectly prepared, but try the burger and truffle fries because they are perfect. We will be back again and again.

The reason for our visit was a business meeting. We were greeted promptly and courteously, and immediately shown to our table. All employees were COVID compliant and the restaurant was spotless. The new summer menu is amazing and the quality of the food was what we've all grown to expect from Chef Brent and his culinary team. The pan seared scallops were perfectly seasoned and blackened; we were all glad to see that Heirloom's staple--their fried shrimp--was still on the menu and delicious as ever. The wine suggestions were spot on--Bethany Morris demonstrates time and time again that she knows her wine! All in all, a memorable evening. We will be certain to visit again, soon.

Amazing experience! We had gone a few weeks back and were super impressed! Our second visit was even better. Outstanding in all respects! Food is delicious with plenty of choices. Service was the best we’ve had in the Hampton Roads area! Prices are reasonable and well worth every penny.
